Verse/Chorus Form:

     B                                    E
You say you want a revolution   well you know

                            B
We all want to change the world

     B                                     E
You tell me that it's evolution  well you know

                           F#
We all want to change the world

C#m                        F#
But when you talk about destruction

C#m                           A   B  G#   F#
Don't you know that you can count me out (in?)

                          B       E
Don't you know it's gonna be   Alright

                          B       E
Don't you know it's gonna be   Alright

                          B       E     F#7
Don't you know it's gonna be   Alright


Guitar Details During Verses:
Guitar 1 plays a standard rock & roll shuffle:

       B-|-----------------------------------------------------------------
-|-----------------------------------------------------------------
-|-----------------------------------------------------------------
-|-----------------------------------------------------------------
-|-----9----9---9h11--9--9-----9h11--9--9--9h11--9--9--9h11--9--9--

-|-----------------------------------------------------------------
      know                                 we  all want to change the...

.. and so on, while Guitar 2 plays something along these lines:
       B-|-------------------------------------------------------
-|-------------4----4------4----4---4----4---4----4------
-|-------------4----4------4----4---4----4---4----4------
-|-------------4h6--4------4h6--4---4h6--4---4h6--4------
-|-------------------------------------------------------
-|-------------------------------------------------------
   You say you want a rev o lu     tion      well you

       E-|-------------------------------------------------------
-|-----9-----9---9-----9---9-----9-------9-----9---------
-|-----9-----9---9-----9---9-----9-------9-----9---------

-|-------------------------------------------------------
-|-------------------------------------------------------
   know                  we all want to change the...


Guitar 2 plays this figure during the "chorus":

                 B             E
-|-------------------------------------------------------11--------------
-|-------------------4----4---------------------------9--12--12-----12---
-|-------------------4----4------------------9--9h11---------11h13--11---
-|-------------------4h6--4---------9--9h11------------------------------
-|-----------------------------------------------------------------------
-|-----------------------------------------------------------------------
  ... it's gonna be         alright

.. repeated a few times, and then the following turnaround:

    F#7
-|-----------------------------------------------------------
-|-----------------------------------------------------------
-|-----------------------------------------------------------
-|-------------2----------4----------2-----------------------
-|--------2h4--------2h4--------2h4-------------2------------
-|--2--2----------2----------2----------2--2h4---------------


Now, over the A B G# chords in the last verse, the lead guitar
plays a screaming figure based on this:

-|-----------14----
-|--14b(16)--------
-|-----------------
-|-----------------
-|-----------------
-|-----------------

And over the B & E chords the final time around, the lead guitar
is rapidly picking in rhythm with the words:

-|--9--------------
-|--12b(14)--------
-|-----------------
-|-----------------
-|-----------------
-|-----------------

.. up until the climactic end.

-|-------------10--9---
-|--b(10)9--7--10--9---
-|-------------11--10--
-|-------------12--11--
-|-------------12--11--
-|-------------10--9---
